Nestled at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, this mid-century garden revival is an Oakland Park gem. Cadence worked with the homeowner, a master gardener and a Burle Marx enthusiast, to bring alive texture, moments of color, and various outdoor rooms. Existing tree canopies and various mature understory growth were protected during the construction process in order to retain the site’s established plant material. Notable trees on the property included two specimen Phoenix reclinata palms, along with a 48 inch diameter Gumbo Limbo. A breakfast deck off the kitchen, a signature mosaic tile wall set on axis with the existing pool and a sprawling wood deck under the canopy of the legacy Gumbo Limbo create different spaces for the client to enjoy. The design allows for varied views and experiences throughout the day and night, from both the inside and outside of the home. Design elements incorporate shapes, colors and textural plant patterns into the garden to pay homage to Brazilian landscape architect, Roberto Burle Marx. A permeable paver driveway was incorporated for additional drainage and also adds texture in block and aggregate material to compliment the mid century modern style residence. Careful attention was paid to appropriate plant material for the waterfront exposure, bio-diversity to increase wildlife and pollinators, and thoughtful consideration to incorporate many collectibles the homeowner has curated over the years through her travels and garden plant sales. A series of Clusia trees were installed to allow views underneath the canopy to the water, while simultaneously concealing eye level views to unsightly architecture across the canal. A signature sea grape was relocated from another home site and now stands as a focal feature in the gravel path of this garden space.
